    How this variable is created

    This variable is derived from responses to the long-term health conditions question and aims to capture people who have specific combinations of health conditions (known as comorbidity).

    Where a respondent selects ‘Diabetes (excluding gestational diabetes)’ and ‘Kidney disease’ they are coded to 1 ‘Has diabetes (excluding gestational diabetes) and kidney disease’. The respondent could also have other long-term health conditions, but those conditions are not recorded in this variable. All other combinations of responses, including ‘No long-term health condition’ are coded to 2 ‘Does not have diabetes (excluding gestational diabetes) and kidney disease’.
